My best guess is that the monitor is trying to display outside of it's range. Set the resolution, color depth and refresh rate to the lowest settings and see if you have the same problems. Also, change the cable to a known working cable and keep the length short, like 3' or less. If the image still shakes, then it is an internal problem that would most likely be too expensive to fix.

I assume you know how to change the settings in Windows, but if not post back and I will help.

Screen flashes - samsung 215tw LCD monitor


walkstex, I will answer the last ? first. All LCD monitors WILL NEED to have their "cold-cathode-fluorescent-tubes" replaced!!! As long as your display had a Bright, Crisp image displayed on it before this "FLASHING" symptom occured, then you don't need new CCF tubes. Your problem seems to be occuring in the electronic ballast circuit called an INVERTER. It Takes 12-15v DC and turns it into 800-1200v ac to light up the CCF tubes. This is the same technology used in the new style curlieQ screw-in light bulbs called CFL's. Only difference is they use what is known as a CONVERTER circuit----AC to AC!!!! And the tubes hung horizontally on the rear of your LCD panel are thin and straight. So, to answer your first ? Yes, it is an issue of getting the CCF tubes to light up. (backlighting) Now, I should also mention that there could possibly be a problem with the main power supply in the monitor. It is called a "switch-mode-power-supply" (smps) that supplies DC for the digital signal processing board (typ +5v) and 12-15v for the inverter. Well, This typical type of symptom could be as simple as a thermally fractured solder joint on the power supply board or some bad Filter capacitors could also need replacing. I suggest that you search web to find out more about the things I have mentioned in the above text. Do search for things like "swollen capacitors", "Bulging Capacitors" and checkout www.badcaps.net for some pictures of typical failures. Get back to me if you want to carry this any further on your own. Bye for now. I'm louie12fix on fixya or lmistyrel @aol.com

Power light flashes continually but monitor will not work. I leave computer on at all times but turn monitor off. I did that last night but today it was flashing and won't come on or off. I tried turning...


Yes. Flashing LED with no image on the screen is the first sign of the power supply gets overloaded. That may be caused by blown/shorted electrolytic capacitors. Open the monitor, take metal lid off and observe for those caps which are rounded on top. Replace them with proper ones.

Monitor Goes black, or flickers on and off


The high pitch sound is coming from the inverter. It is faulty and needs to be repaired or replaced. The inverter supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp, this lamp gives the backlight to the LCD so you can see the LCD images.

Flashing Blue power light


Hi this is the way how to examine what's wrong with your LCD monitors. After you turned it on and the screen went black or stopped working, you have to check that if you can see the image on the screen or not by shining a flashlight into the screen, not directly but find the best angle to the screen and take a look very closely. If you can see the icons or any image, there will be a minor problem. This is because of the lamps inside screen. Some of them were broken and it is very easy to replace. If you cannot see anything on the screen, there'll be some problems with inverter board. If you have soldering tool and want to fix it by yourself, check the caps first. It may cause this problem. Some caps might show leaking or burn spot on the board because of too high temp. If you don't have soldering tool, you better go get a technician to do so. Hope this help!! If anything I can help you with, feel free to let me know.
Thank you,

The screen doesn't display anything and the power button is flashing green


Ok I got the same problem. And this is the way how to examine where the problem is. You have to check that you can see the image on screen by shining a flashlight into the screen, not directly but find the best angle to the screen and take a look very closely. If you can see the icons (Power on both cpu and monitor), there will be a minor problem. Like me, I can see window image using flashlight and check lamps inside. Some of them were broken. If you cannot see any icon on the screen. I would say that there are some problems with inverter board. If you have soldering tool and want to fix it by yourself, check the caps first. It may cause this problem. Some caps might show leaking or dark spot on the board because of too high temp. If you don't have soldering tool, you better go get a technician to do so.

Apple Studio Display Flashing Power Button


For the brave of heart, You can disassemble the monitor. After you get in to the inside of it, you'll see a circuit panel with 6 ballast coils on it. On my Cinema display, what happened was that the solder joints on some of those coils had cracked, causing intermittent connection. After hitting all the connections with a soldering iron to heal the cold solder joints and re-assembling it, it is working perfectly fine now.

Then it goes away? That sounds like the normal degauss feature is working.
